    By Kyle | April 7, 2016

    The eminent journalist has exactly zero to apologize for. More in a column.

      Good column. And a funny line:

      Feminists organized a mass online fainting session

      I must say, I’m disappointed by these dishonest crybabies. Don’t you wish people would think for themselves?

      Why exactly was he asked that question in the first place? Wouldn’t it be more logical to simply ask him which authors inspired him? Why attach a gender to the question?

      It’s not like they go around asking female writers, “Which male writers inspired you?” Sounds like a cheap gotcha question to me.
